#230 of 232 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee gauges not working
Oct 05, 2011 (6:09 am)
Please help! I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee that just had the power booster go (second one in 2 years) While waiting for the new power booster to come in the car sat for a few days without being started. When we started it to get the power booster put in we noticed none of the gauges were working and it seemed like the power steering wasn't either. As I said earlier this is the second power booster we have had to put into the vehicle in 2 years, it has roughly 170k miles on it. We have since replaced the power booster and let the truck run for a while and driven it up and down the road thinking that with all the moisture while the truck was sitting that was why the gauges were not working. We just unhooked the battery and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Now the gauges are working but now the headlights, stero lights, mileage, and windows are not working. It is a straight 6 '99 and I have noticed that it does not shift well, I have to let off the gas so the car will go into the next gear. When it starts it revs up really loud. Obviously from this post you can tell I am clueless about cars! We have checked all the fuses and they are fine. I am wondering if there is a bigger problem with the truck that could caused the power booster to go again (replaced power booster because when you pressed on the break a loud hissing noise would come from the break) Any advice would be appreciated as at this point I am considering if fixing the truck is worth it...

Yes. The flasher relay was my fix. It is kind of hard to get. It is under the dash panel to the left and above the other fuses to the left. About $57.

The airbag light coming on while driving is a recall issue, it is now 2013 and we just got a notice that if the airbag light comes on while driving, they may deploy without notice. This light will come on when you first start it, then goes off, but with that light coming on while driving is VERY BAD!!!. Jeep has no parts as of 23 Jan 2013, but you should bring it to your dealer to find out about this recall, it will not cost you to get it fixed, I freaked yesterday when I got this recall notice. Not sure about the check engine light.
